How to make paying for parking suck less.

Depending on where you're looking, parking can be incredibly costly – but who knew that could be a good thing?

The hack

You can earn up to 5 Qantas Points or 5 Velocity Points per $1 spent by parking at one of three different parking providers. While you can just show up and earn your points for parking at Qantas Valet, for the other two providers you need to pre-book online. So all you have to do is be a little organised.

Here are your options:
